Treasure Island

Tracey Marquart

Death Ship

My personal time capsule and hour glass
Where time stood still and would not let me pass
Trapped between worlds of heaven and hell
This vessel this death ship became my cell

With the person I love stuck on a ship
A one way romance unlike this round trip
No place to go or hide nowhere to turn
For it was I left at the stake to burn

Given the chance to be within arms reach
I lost consciousness and mumbled my speech
To the ground I went not just once but twice
For your power over me is my vice

I was left invisible and alone
Unlike the rest no one to call my own
You looked right through me like a shadow
When I’m the only one to see you glow

When we returned and finally docked
Walking off that death ship I was shocked
That I did not die for I survived
Unlike my notion when I arrived

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
